I've just checked on OSX/i386, and both stock and custom openbios-
sparc64 boot without the reported crash. So it's likely not a 32-bit
issue and it's not Mac OS X per se...
This is what I got booting Debian GNU/Linux 4.0r3 with -nographic btw:
Remapping the kernel... done.
Inconsistent console: input 5, output 5
Without -nographic it hangs after "Remapping the kernel... done.",
making the fan spin louder and not dropping back to the OpenBIOS prompt.
